Youtube block

From MoodleDocs

The Youtube block can only be added to a Tags page. Once you have edited your Profile or made a Blog entry and provided key words in the interests” portion, these words become tags. From the Tags block you can click any tag to be taken to that word’s Tags page, where you can edit it to add the Youtube block.

This block will pull Youtube videos with the same tag words related to the current Tags page. The title is optional. Select the number of videos you would like to display in the block. You can also select the category from which the videos will be pulled in Youtube. In addition, you can specify which specific playlist you would like to pull the videos from by including the playlist id. This id is the alpha-numeric string of numbers at the end of the URL, i.e. using A77EAA3A1CFA1CD8 as the playlist id.
